Visegrád Four (V4) leaders have often described security issues as those on which substantial progress could make the EU seem more concrete for its citizens. Faced with a variety of challenges, ranging from the spill over effects of instability in the Middle East, which have in part triggered the migration crisis and sparked tensions between Central European capitals and the EU, to the troubling resurgence of Russia and its hybrid warfare, Central Europe now finds itself at a ‘crossroads of crisis’ that demands far greater reassurance for its sceptical populations.
